Waking up one wintry morning in her old farmhouse nestled in the Adirondack Mountains of New York; Nora Hamilton instantly knows that something is wrong. When her fog of sleep clears, she finds her world is suddenly, irretrievably shattered: Her husband, Brendan, has committed suicide.
The first few hours following Nora’s devastating discovery pass for her in a blur of numbness and disbelief. Then, a disturbing awareness slowly settles in: Brendan left no note and gave no indication that he was contemplating taking his own life. Why would a rock-solid police officer with unwavering affection for his wife, job, and quaint hometown suddenly choose to end it all? Having spent a lifetime avoiding hard truths, Nora must now start facing them.

Unraveling her late husband’s final days, Nora searches for an explanation—but finds a bewildering resistance from Brendan’s best friend and partner, his fellow police officers, and his brittle mother. It quickly becomes clear to Nora that she is asking questions no one wants to answer. For beneath the soft cover of snow lies a powerful conspiracy that will stop at nothing to keep its presence unknown . . . and its darkest secrets hidden.

My Thoughts
A well written novel with great cast of characters. I love how this was a thriller and very suspenseful novel. I enjoyed the twist and was on my edge of my seat to find out what happens. I felt like I was on a journey with Nora as she goes out to find out with really happened to her husband. All the secrets and lies, which were buried in a small town as she sets out for the truth.
Jenny Milcham is a wonderful storyteller who never disappoints. She has you glued as she keeps you tuned in and you never see what’s coming next.

I think you will definitely enjoy this novel. It’s not just for those who enjoy thrillers or mysteries but anyone who plan enjoys a fabulous read.
